encoders: Playing -> NULL state change causing permanent hang
I've noticed that my pipeline, which contains a vaapi encoder, totally freezes if I set its state to Null.
Pipeline does not hang if no frames were encoded, even if the state was
All the decoders I've tried hang: vp8, vp9, h264.
x264enc and vp9enc work fine
the last Info message the graph produces is this one (ret == FLUSHING)
I've tested it on two Arch boxes with different Intel HW and gstreamer-vaapi (1.16.0) and libva-intel-driver (2.3.0). I didn't figure out how to use gstreamer-vaapi with the new media driver yet.
The python script reproducing the issue is attached, the first
stop callback hangs and never prints "Done". When vaapih264enc is replaced by x264enc,
stop works fine.
It seems the issue is rooted somewhere in the common encoders' logic in
